1 Erection support Design


Support thickness and structure reinforcement
The slewing bearing has suitable axial rigidity: As its diameter is much larger than its
sectional dimension, it must be installed onto a machined bearing support, so that there will be
sufficient rigidity for the load transmitted. In this way, it will be sure that the stress will be
distributed uniformly, avoiding distortion generated in operation unfavorable to work of slewing
bearing.

Therefore, the pedestal thickness should be no less than the minimum value listed in the
following table, and the width of support surface should be no less than the corresponding width
of the slewing bearing.
Raceway center dia. (mm) 500 750 1000 1250 1500 2000 2500 3000
Minimum thickness (mm) 25 30 35 40 50 60 70 80

Cylindrical structure is usually adopted for installation of bearing support. The cylinder wall
is aligned to the center of raceway. To make load uniform, thick round base is better than thin base
with reinforce, as shown in the following figure:

1 Erection support Design


Support flatness
To prevent slewing bearing from partial overload and ensure that it will operate flexibly, the
installation rack should, after all welding sequences, be treated with internal stress removal, and
installation surface machining. The flatness (including angular deviation of plane) should be
controlled within a certain range.
Uneven support will lead to raceway deformation, which lead to accidental shutdown or
lockout, shortening service life of slewing bearing. The support flatness (including angular
deviation of plane) should be controlled within the range as shown in the following table:
Raceway center circle

>2500~3000 0.3 0.4 0.2
Allowable flatness including angular deviation of plane

Support rigidity
The erection support should also have good rigidity. Under maximum allowable load,
deflection deformation should be controlled within the range as shown in the following table:

Average track diameter (mm) 500 750 1000 1250 1500 2000 2500 3000
Maximum flexural deformation (mm) 0.25 0.3 0.35 0.45 0.55 0.65 0.8 1
Deflection deformation under maximum allowable load

Plastic binder
If the above-mentioned tolerance can’t be met, epoxy resin may be used to replace surface
finishing. According to dimensions and unevenness to be compensated for installation purpose,
there are many kinds of plastic binders for option.

2 Transport, Storage, Unpacking


Transport
All of our slewing bearings are packed well to avoid damage during transport. The product
should be kept in horizontal position during transport and storage. If the slewing bearing is not
kept in horizontal position during transport, special measures should be taken.
Like any other precise mechanical device, the slewing bearing should be handled with care.
Hoisting of the slewing bearing should be done horizontally with listing bolts. During the process
of hoisting, collision, radial collision in particular, must be avoided. Relevant device which can
bear weight of the slewing bearing should be used to carry the slewing bearing. Weight of the
slewing bearing is indicated in the label.

Storage
A packed slewing bearing has been finished with anti-rust and oil seal surface treatment.
Under normal storage condition, the slewing bearing will not rust within 12 months after delivery
from plant. For users, if a slewing bearing in stock is still within the above-mentioned period, the
slewing bearing can be stored for long time, as long as the original packing is intact. Any slewing
bearing which is outside its rust-proof life should be cleaned and oil-sealed again and need
replaced packing, if it is still kept in storage.
Any slewing bearing should be filled with oil once every 18 months of storage. (Refer to
section 3.6 “Operation & Maintenance”)

Unpacking
When unpacking the slewing bearing before installation, the following precautions should be
taken:
 When removing the packing material, be careful to avoid cutting into the real ring.
 When cutting the packing material, it’s better to cut on the external diameter
instead of the two ends.
When removing the rust-proof oil at the surface:
 Standard industrial solvent should be used and chlorinated solvent is absolutely
prohibited
 Be careful to prevent solvent from flowing into seal ring or raceway
 Before installing the oil cup or connecting the oil tube, the plastic plug or screw
plug should be taken off from the oil cup hole.

3 Installation
Erection support confirmation
 Be sure that the erection support structure accords with the technical requirements
(refer to “3.1 Erection support Design”)
 Check whether there is any metal chip, weld grain, rust stain, paint or other
impurities, which all should be removed.
Centering
When the load is mainly radial, and in particular, when the bearing is installed vertically,
forced centering is necessary. Using structural bonding type LOCTITE 586 is the effective way to
limit relative displacement between the slewing bearing and its support.
Positioning
The quenching soft belt mark (external mark “S” or at stopped hole) must be set at a
non-loaded zone or a non-frequently-loaded zone, i.e. a location which forms a 90-degree angle
with the main loaded axle or the loaded arm.
Fit check
After the slewing bearing is hoisted into place, the flatness of the bonded plane is checked
with a filler gauge. If there is any gap, machining should be done again, or the gap should be filled
plastic or partial gasket, in order to prevent the bearing from distorting after the bolt is tightened.
Distortion will affect the performance and service life of the slewing bearing.
Gear backlash check
Before the mounting bolt is tightened, gear backlash should be adjusted according to the
highest point of gear pitch circle radial run-out (three teeth marked with green paint), and after the
bolt is tightened, gear backlash check should be done all over the gear ring.
When a pinion is installed:
 Make the drive gear adjusted to the maximum eccentric point of gear ring and mark
it with a blue line.
 At this moment, backlash must be limited within the calculated value or 0.05xleast
value of modulus.
 When several pinions are used, each of them should be adjusted to the same
condition.
 In testing, be sure the pinion is well aligned to the gear ring, so that the gear
engagement is well contacted.
 Before startup, gear ring and teeth of pinion should be lubricated. (refer to section
3.6 “Operation & Maintenance”)

 Whether up to the recommended grade, e.g. marked with 10.9 at the top
 Whether screw thread is lubricated.
 Bolt’s clamping length Lk≥5d (d-bolt diameter)
 Tempered flat gasket should meet the following requirements:
 Yield strength must be equal to or greater than 600Mpa
 Diameter DR=2xd
 Thickness h>=0.3xd
Any spring washer or any other type of washer is absolutely prohibited. Otherwise, warranty
will be cancelled.

Tightening mode
Install fasteners and tighten them gently. Then further tighten each fastener to the set value.
Suitable fixed value torque wrench or hydraulic tool may be used for this purpose.
Tightening in the “star”-chart style can acquire uniform tightening effect all over the
periphery. A bolt should be tightened in 180°directions symmetrically. After the final attempt, be
sure the bolt on the periphery has the same pre-tightening force.

6 Operation & Maintenance


Suitable lubrication is necessary for durability of raceway and gear. Lubricating grease
improves capability and service life of slewing bearing, while working condition, e.g. load,
temperature, speed, and vibration, determines lubricant selection.
Characteristics of recommended lubricant for slewing bearing:
 Lithium base grease
 Minimum viscosity of base oil: 150 mm2/S
 NLGI consistency grade: 2
 Anti-friction and extreme pressure additive
 Working temperature: -300 Ca+1200 C
 Four-ball test: Clinkering load STMD 2596 (NT24)>300
 Maximum NDM value (revolving speed x raceway center diameter)
 For ball slewing bearing=60000
 For pin roller slewing bearing=30000
Lubricating grease compatibility table
According to our experience, the lubricating greases listed in the following table are
compatible with each other and with all parts of slewing bearing. Any other grease which is
deemed compatible with any of the lubricating greases recommended by the Company is usable.
However, molybdenum-containing disulphide MOS2 is strictly prohibited.

6 Operation & Maintenance


Slewing bearing upon delivery from plant:
 When the slewing bearing is delivered from plant, a small amount of No.2 extreme
pressure lithium base grease (GB7324). When the slewing bearing is started, the user
should refill new lubricating grease according to its working condition.
 The surface of gear and bearing is coated with rust-proof oil for anti-oxidation
protection.
Slewing bearing in use:
 Raceway of the slewing bearing should be lubricated periodically. The lubrication cycle
depends on the operation condition and environment. We recommend:
 Lubrication should be conducted once every 150 hours generally
 Lubrication should be conducted once every 50 hours, if the operation requirements
are strict, and the operation environment is humid with much dust.
 Sufficient grease should be refilled before and after long-term disuse.
 Lubrication should be conducted once every 6 months during long-term disuse.
 Because there are many comprehensive job factors, users can choose their best grease at
will according to specific needs. For example, Mobilux EP 2 and Shell Alvania EP(LF)
2 lubricating grease can be adopted for raceway.
 When filling lubricating grease, turn the slewing bearing slowly to make the grease
filled uniformly. In every time of lubrication, the slewing bearing should be turned
slowly for at least two rounds until the grease is oozed out of the seal. Every lubricating
hole should be lubricated with grease.
 Quantity of lubricating grease may be calculated specifically by our technical
department. The practical formula for determining the necessary minimum ”Q” (cm3) is
shown as follows:
Q=0.005/3x D x H
D = Slewing bearing’s raceway center diameter mm
H = Slewing bearing’s total height mm
In summary, trace of small amount of oozed new grease should be seen at the lip of
the seal ring.
 The gear face should be cleaned frequently to remove all impurities and lubricated with
relevant grease. Whether by spraying or by brushing, the lubricating grease should
completely cover pinion and gear face with gear ring.
 In use, it’s prohibited to flush the slewing bearing directly with water, which may lead to
entry of water into raceway. Hard impurities are strictly prevented from approaching or
entering gear engagement area.
 In use, attention should be paid to operation of the slewing bearing. If noise, impact or
power increases suddenly, the machine should be stopped immediately for checkup and
troubleshooting. Overhauling should be done, if necessary.
Special application:
Our design and development department can provide lubricating methods for special working
conditions in respect of temperature and speed according to user’s requirements.

6 Operation & Maintenance


Preventive maintenance
 Leak tightness check
Judge whether the seal ring is intact by visual inspection:
a) No excessive stretch or damage
b) Positioned correctly
c) Rub the wear beside the lip
Please replace the sealing element, if necessary. After re-lubricating, wipe out the old grease
and check whether there is any pollutant such as sand, coal dust or metal particle.
 Fastener check
It is very important that as the fastener of a slewing bearing will necessarily be trouble with
work fatigue, the bolts should be checked to see whether they still maintain the required
pre-tightening force.
It is our recommendation that after two to four months of use (100 working hours), every bolt
should be re-tightened and should be checked at least once every year (500 working hours)
thereafter. If any bolt is found loose, further check must be done and then necessary preventive
measure must be taken. Some regulations require that a fastener must be replaced once every
seven years or 14,000 working hours.
 Gear check
When conducting cleanup before re-lubricating the gear:
a) Check the tooth root, ring and pinion carefully for any impurity
b) Check the load exerted by pinion on full tooth width of gear to see whether it is
uniformly distributed, and rectify the skewed axle, if necessary
c) Check gear backlash
Limit of serviceability
All slewing bearings provided by the Company have pre-tightening force to ensure normal
work and safety in use. When the slewing bearing is in use, due to decrease of pre-tightening force,
the axial clearance of the slewing bearing under load would increase significantly. When the
clearance increases to the extent that the machine can’t work normally and the material used can’t
meet the safety conditions, the slewing bearing should be replaced.
To quantify the coefficient of wear, it’s necessary to know the change in axial clearance of
the slewing bearing under load.
 Being brand new: J0
 Being checked: J1
These data are got through measurement under conditions which are same as the initial
conditions after checking the condition of fasteners (see “3.4 Post-Installation Commissioning &
Detection of Slewing Bearing). The measured data should be included in the corresponding
machine maintenance manual.
Abrasion loss: u=J1-J0.
 When u>=J0, bearing should be checked more frequently
 When u>=1.5 J0, bearing replacement should be considered
 When u>=2J0, bearing replacement must be done.

7 Removal of Common Faults


Difficult turning of slewing bearing_1
Every slewing bearing goes through strict inspection and test run before being released from
plant, so all of them are acceptable products. As the slewing bearing has pre-tightening force on its
sealing face and frictional force of the sealing face should be overcome for turning, it’s normal
that certain starting moment is needed when it is turned.
In case of clamping stagnation in turning, the following method should be taken to remove

A slewing bearing just released from plant would make uniform sounds of a rolling steel ball
when idling, which is normal. It is not normal if the uniform normal sounds are accompanied with
abnormal and loud sounds. Abnormal sounds in use are generally extended phenomena of difficult
turning—abnormal sound would be generated if a slewing bearing which rotates with difficulty
